i watched it, i found it a bit odd but as our club separated from our local railway club it all sounded true to our experience
there as a few odd things i noticed one was
when asked about the film dunkirk the captain of the red team said no good wrong coaches, (1960's ones)
then thier layout a d-day themed one had wrong shermans in wrong camo sheme!
so not good with military stuff then :lol: :lol: :lol:

Saw all that too :) There was also a Crusader II (in green) and Matilda II (desert scheme) on the layout :D

Still the building and modelling was interesting - mostly far better than mine anyway :oops:

Saw the second one tonight. The military themed Black Adder Layout took the laurels with some impressive animations including a nice looking railway gun. Seems the guys going for military themes are doing better so far.

Cheers Fred.
